El desafío de una medicina: teorías de la salud y ocho “Hipótesis del Mundo” El desafío – proveer orden al todo, mediante el diseño, composición, tensión, balance, claridad, y armonía.Sábado en el Parque con Jorge (Stephen Sondheim, 1984) * (Traducido por Antonio Elizalde de Schwartz, G.

Dienstfrey (1996) ha afirmado el desafío de esta manera: Un día a muchos días desde ahora, con alguna suerte, tendremos una sola medicina. 2La información sobre la salud y la enfermedad está estallando. 3Para aquellos que mantienen la visión de la medicina integrativa (por ejemplo Cassidy 1994, 1996; Russek y Schwartz 1996; Schwartz y Russek 1997 a) – que es, de construir una medicina que acompañe más y más lo que es conocido como el tratamiento de la enfermedad y la mantención de la salud – esta explosión presenta un profundo desafío intelectual. Para algunos, la pregunta no tiene sentido.

How Australians were ready to act on climate science 25 years ago … and what happened next | Environment There’s something about climate change that almost everyone in Australia has either forgotten or never knew in the first place. In 1990 Bob Hawke announced his government wanted the country to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 20% by the year 2005. For a fleeting moment, it seemed the Australian public, politicians and the media were in agreement with the science. But a new book investigates how the industries that stood to lose the most worked to undermine the science and entirely reshape the story being told to the public. “We have been propagandised,” says the author, Maria Taylor. Hawke was ready In 1989 Hawke described a “growing consensus amongst scientists” showing there was a strong chance that major climate change was on its way, that this change was linked to human activity, and this could have “major ramifications for human survival” if nothing was done. The UN’s intergovernmental plan on climate change delivered its first blockbuster assessment of the climate science in 1990.

Fuhem Study Says Frame Global Warming As A ‘Public Health’ Issue | The Daily Caller Tweet A new study is urging activists and the media to talk less about how global warming will impact the environment and more about how it will negatively impact public health. Framing global warming as a public health issue, the study says, will convince people to support policies to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. “When framed as an environmental problem, this interpretation likely distances many people from the issue and contributes to a lack of serious and sustained public engagement necessary to develop solutions,” reads a new study published in the journal Environmental Communication. The study urges activists to use the legitimacy of the media to barrage the public with coverage on how global warming could make public health problems worse, like asthma and mosquito-born illnesses. This new study basically lays out the same strategy the Obama administration has adopted when it comes to global warming.

Foro Transciones Rocky Rex's Science Stuff: The Changing Earth - Farming, food & possible mass migrations Farmers can put up with some bad weather, but climate change will make unusual events more likely. 20-30% of plant and animal species will be more likely to become extinct if the temperature rises by more than 1.5-2.5C. There will be big effects on farming from droughts and floods. The biggest effects will be seen first near the Equator.Just being near the Equator makes it more difficult for countries to make economic progress. Hotter conditions affect how crops grow. Our agriculture is heavily reliant on grasses from the temperate regions. Corn, wheat, and rice are all types of grass. The Tropics is a hard place to grow an industrial society. Countries where food prices rise rapidly tend to become unstable, making conflicts more likely. Providing food for everyone in the world involves farming, fertilizer manufacture, food storage, packaging, transport and many other activities. Those activities are responsible for up to one-third of all human-caused greenhouse-gas emissions.
